I’m a grade 3 teacher and last week I started receiving end of year gifts from some of my students. I never expect gifts but most kids do bring something and I like it, most of the time. This past week, a student gave me a very nice card, but when I opened it I found a gift certificate for a weight loss clinic where the student’s mother works. I can understand her wanting to promote her business, but I can’t help being offended by the gift. I’m self-conscious about my appearance as it is and this didn’t help. I want to tell the mother how inappropriate I think the gift was but I’m not sure if it’s appropriate to do that. – Teacher Troubles
